Paw Paw Festival

This past weekend was the Paw Paw Festival here in Frederick, Maryland. It’s the 2nd year we’ve had it. If you’re not familiar with paw paws, they’re a fruit. In fact, they are the largest fruit trees native to North America. The flavor of the fruit is usually described as “tropical”, tasting similar to a banana and mango. There are a lot of great websites that go into the history of the paw paw, so I’ll spare you all that. This Serious Eats article has some great information.

I had no idea there were so many varieties. I got to sample Allegheny, Susquehanna and Shenandoah, though only the Allegheny were left to purchase by the time I got around to it. Look for some recipes/experiments from me in the next few days. In the meantime, here are some pictures from the event.
